Homunculus is a monster that has a small range of movement because it is attached to the wall. Given enough time it will detach, shooting 6 radial blood shots and chasing quickly after Isaac. It leaves a small amount of creep when it dies while attached to the wall or if it detaches itself from the wall.

Begotten acts like Homunculus but doesn't leave creep when it dies. When it detaches from the wall, it turns the room dark and phases in and out of visibility.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Homunculi encountered in the Mr. Fred boss fight can only detach under Mr. Fred's command, not at free will.
  • Similar to Frowning Gapers and Nulls, Homunculi and Begottens are seen in a sleep-like state at the start of a room before they immediately open their eyes and attempt to pursue the player.
  • When Begottens break free, they become slightly more visible the closer they are to Isaac.
  • Begottens are the only non-boss enemies that can cast a "curse of darkness" effect.
  • Homunculi will still leave behind creep if re-rolled with the D10.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! If an Explosivo tear is stuck to a Begotten, when it becomes invisible, the tear will fall to the ground.
Bug Bug! Added in Afterbirth † In the "RoomEditor" modding tool, Homunculi cannot be placed.
